DO:

– Come prepared with a couple of contrasting songs in the style of the show.

– Look nice. First impressions count.

– Know who is in the audition room.

–  Make sure you have a few back-up songs. If you sing the wrong song for the panel and they ask you for another and you have nothing, it’s over! You won’t be back.

– Thank the pianist. He/She will remember you!!!

DONT:

– Don’t announce that you are sick if you are. It just gets really boring. We just want to hear you and we will likely know anyway and ask you if we think your voice is not what it should be. If we think you’re right and worth another listen when you are better we will get you back.

– When asked what you are going to sing don’t start a long monologue about how you have this one and that one and the other. Just pick one!

– If you get 3/4s of the way through your song and mess it up don’t ask to start again, just pick it up where you left off or at an appropriate place in the song.

– Don’t decide for yourself how your performance went and then show it on your face as you start to leave the room. If you have messed it up it’s likely a much bigger thing to you than it is to us.

– Don’t say you can do something if you can’t.

FINAL TIP: JUST KNOW THAT WE WANT YOU TO BE THE ONE! IT’S OUR JOB TO FIND OUR CAST.
